I started with a Lucky Limeade card base cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. Then I cut a panel of the Lucky Limeade DSP from the 2011-13 In Color DSP Stacks to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered it to the card base using SNAIL. I cut a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ and I embossed it with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and I set it aside. Then I cut a strip of the Tea for Two DSP to 1″ x 4-3/4″, wrapped the lace from the Artisan Embellishments Kit around the center using SNAIL to adhere it, pierced the left side with the Paper-Piercing Tool and placed the Designer Builder Brad through it. I folded the prongs of the In-Color Designer Printed Brad into the bottom of the brad and adhered it to the Designer Builder Brad with Glue Dots. I set this aside also, then started working on the DSP four leaf clovers. I punched 4 circles using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack circle from Very Vanilla card stock, 4 hearts from each DSP (all from the Tea for Two DSP) using the Small Heart Punch, I snipped 4 little stems from the leftover DSP using my Paper Snips and I cut 4 pieces of Baker’s Twine cut to about 3″. I colored the Baker’s Twine a little bit with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker so that it wasn’t bright white. Then I adhered two Glue Dots to each of the circles and used that as my base to build the clovers. I started by placing the stem on the bottom and the folded Baker’s Twine at the top, then I arranged the 4 hearts around the circles and adhered them to the Glue Dots. Then I placed the clovers on the embossed Very Vanilla panel and adhered them by taping the top of the strings to the panel (I snipped off the excess string from the top). I adhered the decorated DSP strip over the top of the Baker’s Twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered the panel to the card front with SNAIL. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Lucky Limeade ink on Very Vanilla card stock, punched it out with the Word Window Punch, adhered it with SNAIL to a piece of Tea for Two DSP that I’d punched out using the Modern Label Punch, then adhered the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin Dimensionals. To finish the card, I added a pearl to the center of each clover.
